About this book

Language: Spanish

Five years have elapsed since publication of the first edition of this book. Since then monographs have been published on different groups of Lepidoptera, which are part of the European fauna and to some extent have revolutionized the taxonomic classification. Recently, molecular genetics is having a dramatic impact on studies of species and speciation, and DNA barcoding is revealing a wealth of biodiversity, much of it previously unsuspected, in the form of cryptic species that are morphologically irrecognizable.

Summary in Spanish:
Han transcurrido cinco años desde que se publicó el libro Las mariposas de España peninsular editado por PRAMES. Desde entonces se han publicado monografías sobre diferentes grupos de lepidópteros, que inciden en la fauna europea y han revolucionado en cierta medida los sistemas de clasificación y ordenación taxonómica. En tiempos recientes, la genética molecular está ejerciendo una influencia enorme en los estudios sobre especies y especiación, el llamado «código de barras de ADN», está revelando una gran cantidad de biodiversidad, en buena medida previamente no sospechada y correspondiente a especies crípticas que son morfológicamente irreconocibles.
